False WitnessBook - 2007
"Sometimes it seems that Our Lady of Hope Monastery just can't catch a break. Situated in rural New Mexico, the monastery squeaks by on donations and various craft and skilled jobs suited to the nuns' cloistered, contemplative life. But when a stolen SUV crashes through their outside walls, they are faced with financial demands that far exceed their means. So when one of their major benefactors, previously anonymous, shows up and offers the monastery a great deal of money for what appears to be a simple task, the nuns are quick to accept. The very ill John Gutierrez is looking for his estranged niece, whom he believes is in the area. Having followed the exploits of Sister Agatha, the extern nun, and heard of her investigative skills, he turns to her for help. All Sister Agatha has to do is track down the woman, and the monastery's financial worries will be over." "But nothing is ever as simple as it seems. Sister Agatha's investigation quickly lands her in the midst of a deadly situation, and it's up to her to uncover the truth before it takes an even deadlier turn for everyone involved."--BOOK JACKET.
